Tottenham’s Predicted XI vs Leicester City

4-2-3-1GK – Michel Vorm

Having played the home match against the foxes Vorm should be a starter again for Pochettino, as he looks to give his number one Hugo Lloris, some recovery time. 

RB – Kyle Walker

The seemingly ever rotating right back position looks to be filled by Kyle Walker on Wednesday evening as Pochettino appears to be giving Kieran Trippier a run of games in the first team, although this position is hard to judge at this time as the Argentinian seems to be swapping the full backs nearly every game. 

CB – Kevin Wimmer

Along with Michel Vorm, having started the initial 3rd round game against Leicester, Wimmer is an almost certain starter as his manager will be looking to rest first choice centre back Jan Vertonghen.
CB – Toby Alderweireld

Having started all but one game across all competitions for Tottenham this season, surely it is time for a rest for the Belgian? It appears not as Mauricio Pochettino seems to play the centre back in every game possible.

LB – Ben Davies

Similar to the right back situation, Danny Rose and Ben Davies have rotated in and out of the side across competitions in recent weeks and it is tough to say who will start, but having sat out this weekends Premier League fixture, the Welshman could be back into the starting eleven at the KingPower stadium.

CM – Nabil Bentaleb

Having played a small role in recent fixtures, despite seemingly being match fit, the Algerian will surely be given a game in this third round reply so to show his manager he is worth a place in the flourishing Tottenham Hotspur midfield.

CM – Tom Carroll

The 23 year old Englishman received some harsh critiques in recent weeks from fans and pundits alike; it is clear that Tom Carroll is a trusted member of Pochettino’s squad due to the amount of game time he is given, and therefore should be given a starting birth against Leicester City

LAM – Erik Lamela

Lamela tends to play more cup games than his attacking counterparts, therefore he is most likely to start on Wednesday night, ahead of the likes of Christian Eriksen.

CAM – Josh Onomah

The next young Tottenham star? Josh Onomah is being slowly integrated into the squad with cameo’s in several Premier League fixtures this season, the 18 year old looks certain to start having impressed with his energy and enthusiasm in the previous game against Leicester in the FA Cup.

RAM -Nacer Chadli

Due to injury and performance, the Belgian international has found himself on the periphery of the clubs starting eleven. With an improving Tottenham team combined with the ambition to play for his country in this summer’s Euro’s, Nacer Chadli will certainly be out to make a point and show the sort of form that saw the attacking midfielder score 11 Premier League goals last season.
ST -Heung-Min Son 

This position can only be filled by two or three players. With Clinton N’Jie out with a long term injury, and Harry Kane in need of a rest, the South Korean looks the best bet for his manager as the Argentinian aims to find a way of finding a side that can score freely and win games without the talismanic English striker, Harry Kane.

  1. This pisses me of Townsend KWPeters Oduwa Fazio could have all played . But Potch is worse manager for discarding players in all years i supported Spurs Vorm Walker Wimmer Fazio K W Peters Townsend Benteleb Lamela Onomah Oduwa Son Subs Kane Coulthirst Winks Eriksen Kane Dier

  2. I think Poch will play a stronger side than you are suggesting. We have Drawn 1, lost 1 over last few weeks against the foxes, he will want a win, so expect almost 1st 11 with maybe Wimmer, in for Vertngen.
